HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: 28/06/2016 at 19:41

We've been so lucky with the weather while we've been in Norfolk. Every time we visit a garden or explore a new town or village the weather is nice, then when we get back in the car or arrive back at the cottage it pours!


I expect the blackbirds have had all my strawberries in France, I didn't get around to netting them.

Our flight home tomorrow has been cancelled, French air traffic controllers on strike. No places on a flight until Saturday, means another 4 days holiday!  Our friend who is house sitting sounded quite cheerful about it, she is happy to stay until Saturday. We'd planned a light microwave ready meal tonight as we were getting up early, but instead have been out to yet another beamy old pub. I had fish and prawn lasagne and OH had fish and chips.


Today I cleaned the cottage from top to bottom and washed the sheets and towels.

I've lost touch with this thread as we are on holiday, just caught up. DD, we are back on Tuesday. If you need anything let me know. I have tried not to mention anything on a computer, but know we are there if necessary. Hugs xx

Morning all.


We are off to Ely today. There's a concert in the Cathedral this evening and we'll do some looking around the town first.

On a cheerier note - I posted photos of the lovely gardens at East Ruston.

HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Enjoyed looking at Peter Beales roses this morning, good meeting Topbird for the first time.


Feel a bit numbed and in shock about the results. OH is depressed, as an ex-pat it could be hard for him. I have French nationality, so may be easier for me regarding things like health care, but my English  pension is bound to be affected, especially as I receive it in euros. But the bigger question is whether England will remain a well off and important country. My daughter saw on the French news that they are thinking in France that it may become a small, second rate country and other countries may not wish to trade with the English any more.

Morning all, sunny here. Looking forward to the rose morning with Dove and Topbird. I didn't manage to get up in time to get my washing into the machine to put it on the line, unlike Dove!


Slept badly as OH snored and wriggled and kept getting up to see how the referendum was going. He's very depressed about it. Apart from the bigger issues it means his pension has gone down as the £ has fallen against the € and his shares have collapsed. He's worrying about his future health care if we stay in France.

I tried to find this thread using the search the site facility but it didn't come up. Found it by looking back through my posts.


We went to The Old Vicarage, East Ruston, yesterday. Fabulous garden, but I think I'll put it on it's own thread as this one says Sissinghurst, Gt Dixter and Scotney Castle on the top.
